Question about Saeco Magic Comfort Plus Espresso Machine
Help...we have an expresso machine that we love...produces the best coffee we have eveer tasted...it is a hand-me-down gift that we brought to Canada from Germany last summer...the electronics are not working properly....after I descaled it yesterday....the dispaly is saying "ventilate". Everytime I do that (ventilate) the display does not change....we are stuck at "ventilate" and can't move on from there...we can't get it fixed because there is no one in our city that knows about these European machines.
I have had this problem with our coffee machine as well some how the machine has sucked air into the system and needs to get it out.
To ventilate the machine turn the dial on top of the 'magic comfort' sign (the one for the froth) and place a glass underneath. Keep the dial turned till the sign ventilate goes away then close the dial.
This process has always worked for me...

My Saeco magic comfort plus displays coffee bean empty ready to select..I emptied and reloaded with beans and keep getting the same response..Doesn't seem like it is grinding the beans??

Saeco magic comfort plus has "Rinsing....Warming UP...." which will not go away, after I replaced the boiler. Thx.

Our Saeco Magic Comfort Plus was showing the 'ventilate' message. I descaled the machine a few days earlier and thought that loosened lime scale was blocking water flow. The grinder was working, grounds were damp, but no coffee. The steam knob and the water push button produced water at first, but then that stopped too.
I took the brew group out. After unscrewing 2 small Phillips screws, I removed the piece of plastic at the top with the thin bent pipe. I turned the brew group upside down and a cone shaped spring and a tiny glass ball fell out. I replaced the spring (narrow part down) and reattached the plate with the thin pipe. When I tried the machine again, it still did not work. I left it alone for a day. The next day I tried again, ran a little water through the steam knob and a little through the water push button. Then brewed coffee and it worked.
I called Saeco and asked about the glass ball, which seemed to me was blocking the water. They said the ball belongs there and they will send me a new one. Maybe it shifted position where it was blocking the water. I'm puzzled, but at least the machine is working. I agree with other Saeco users that the manual leaves a lot to be desired, not what I expect from a company with the Saeco name.
